Sark by Kate Davies
Sark is a beautiful collection of 12 knitting patterns (6 garments, 6 accessories) from Scottish designer Kate Davies. The patterns in this book are designed for 8ply/DK weight yarn.
In Scots, a sark is an essential layer, the foundation of any outfit. In her new collection, Kate Davies has created twelve foundational designs with structure and simplicity at their heart.
Featuring a technique of twisting stitches that produces fabric with a beautifully textured and embossed appearance, each pattern explores the creative potential of the twisted stitch in pieces that are engaging to knit and easy to wear.
There’s a comfortable oversized gansey, a smart cardigan with panels and puffed sleeves, a pair of yoke sweaters, a cosy wrap, and an appealing range of quick-to-knit one-skein accessories, all designed with clear instructions and clean finishing details that are hallmarks of Kate’s work.
The book also includes a collection of thought-provoking monochrome images, as Tom explores ideas of pattern and structure in the natural world and built environment.
A celebration of collaborative, creative making, Sark is a book as beautiful as it is useful.
112 pages. Designed and printed in Scotland.
